In one of Latin America’s most unequal countries, Francia Márquez, a Black Colombian rural activist, challenges the status quo with a presidential campaign that reappropriates the derogatory term “Igualada” — someone who acts as if they deserve rights that supposedly don’t correspond to them — and inspires a nation to dream.

With unprecedented access, director Juan Mejía Botero brings his camera into Márquez’s inner circle, as she runs a rousing campaign speaking truth to power, faces death threats, and lives her life in the eye of the storm.
